It's very fitted from the bust to the top of the hips, and then wow, that gathered uber full skirt! This style was known as a 'torso dress,' because it hugs and set off one's, well, torso.

The Condition: Very good to excellent. There may be the *slightest* bit of overall even fade on the black. I keep going back and forth on this, but am going to mention it just in case. (The print is as vibrant and colorful as the day it was made.) The metal stop bar at the base of the zipper was gone so I've securely repaired it by hand with tack stitching.
